The third annual Chemistry of Life Processes (CLP) Core Crawl will be held on Thursday, July 18, 2013 from 3:00PM – 500PM.  This two-hour lively and interactive event encourages researchers to socialize, network and “crawl” between ten core facilities located in the Richard and Barbara Silverman Hall for Molecular Therapeutics and Diagnostics, located at 2170 Campus Drive on the Evanston campus. 

Core managers and staff will showcase the innovative research and discoveries taking place within Silverman Hall by leading tours through their facilities.  Participants have the opportunity to learn how the cores work together to advance potential therapeutics from the discovery phase to prepare for human clinical trials. Participants are given tickets by each core they visit which are valid towards pizza, beer samplings and raffles.  By the end of the event, “crawlers” can make their way outside to the Silverman Hall courtyard for food and fun. 

Participating core facilities will include the:  Center for Advanced Molecular Imaging, Developmental Therapeutics Core, High Throughput Analysis Laboratory, Integrated Molecular Structure Education and Research Center, Medicinal & Synthetic Chemistry Core, Nanoscale Integrated Fabrication, Testing and Instrumentation, Proteomics Center for Excellence and Proteomics Core, Quantitative Bioelemental Imaging Center, and Recombinant Protein Production Core.
